Amy Adejokun Section editor

Set in a quiet part of town, this is an absolutely charming hotel largely due to its superb grounds and compact set up which ensures a fun yet relaxed atmosphere. A real haven away from the frenzy of the town centre, it is ideal for couples or small families, ideally with children from the age of 6 or 7 who won't necessarily need the attention of an animator for long periods. It would perhaps be unfair to expect the rooms to match up to the external public spaces, however they are clean, comfortable and have lovely views of the gardens. And, with a good restaurant and pleasant staff, the Parque San Antonio gets a big thumbs up from us - highly recommended.

    Location 6.25 /10

    The hotel is situated in a quiet residential area of the northern resort of Puerto de la Cruz, with no other hotels in the immediate vicinity. The closest beach, Playa JardŪn, and the town centre are both located around one and a half miles away, easily accessible both by foot or road. The hotel does not have its own car park, however this is not a highly frequented area, so you will find a space to park without too much difficulty. The island's northern airport is 17 miles away while 57 mile separates the southern airport from the hotel.

    Accommodation 7.25 /10

    The 260 rooms at the Parque San Antonio are divided into two main types: standard and family. The rooms are not the best decorated we saw but are certainly functional and clean and do have great views of either the interior gardens and pool or of the mountainous interior of the island. The generously proportioned standard rooms have the classic combination of desk, bedside table, wardrobe and table and chairs in terms of furniture as well as a fridge, safe (11.50? per week), regular television and phone. What makes these rooms a little different from others is the bamboo detail on some of the furniture which is a nice touch, continuing the tropical theme established by the gardens. The bathrooms are equally spacious and are in good condition and have bathtub with shower, bidet, hairdryer and basic toiletries. As for the balcony, well this is made very pleasant by the plants in the boxes on its edge and of course by the views. Rooms on the ground floor have more greenery on the end of their terraces. Family rooms have a small porch/lobby at their entrance and a larger surface area filled with extra tables and chairs and a second single bed. They also boast larger balconies.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    The hotel's lobby is quite a low key affair, where a square reception desk is surrounded by bamboo framed furniture with floral cushions. There are a few green plants dotted around the place hinting to what awaits the guest within the main part of the hotel, while opposite the desk through the windows is a view of the pool area, gardens and accommodation buildings. During our visit the well meaning gentleman at reception seemed a bit out of sorts and there was no one else around to be of service. In one corner are a few coin-operated PCs for guests' use and there should by now be wifi available too (there were plans for it at the time of our visit). There is just one pool at the hotel with one end sectioned off for the use of children. It is surrounded by in the first instance plenty of loungers and parasols positioned on the lawn and a little further back by lush vegetation including palms and flowerbeds. No matter that there is no view from the poolside as even the accommodation buildings which encircle are pretty to look at with the sloping roofs of the ground floor rooms covered with grass and flowerboxes overflowing with colour from the windows of the rooms on the first floor. Adjacent to the pool are several areas of gorgeous, well-kept gardens, complete with ponds home to ducks and various fish and fountains. This is possibly the hotel's trump card as not many properties can claim to have such grounds.

    In terms of animation, every night there is live music outside (or inside during the winter) while two nights a week a show takes place: Tuesday night is Argentinean night and on Fridays a Flamenco show comes to town. For adults during the day the one animator will either organize several on-site activities or alternatively take guests in town or arrange short trekking excursions. For kids, if there are any in the hotel, she will occupy them with games, painting etc although the facilities available to do so are limited.

    Other services at the hotel include a minimarket, a book swap and babysitting on request. The hotel is in a general condition, clean and is a calm place to be. Access to the rooms is easy with lifts in all buildings and well indicated room numbers.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    The hotel's only restaurant, a buffet setup which serves both breakfast and dinner, is situated on the first floor with a view onto the pool and gardens. It is a simple room with modest dťcor and furniture, however the food is of a high standard and there is a good choice of dishes, for vegetarians too. The service is efficient and carried out with a smile while the setting is calm with no mad rush for the buffet. Twice weekly there are themed dinners. Lunch can be taken, at extra charge for those not on an all inclusive package, at the pool bar where a menu of light snacks is available. This small hut with AndalucŪan tiling also serves various beverages throughout the day and has open air seating around the pool. Just nearby there is a barbeque which operates in summer only and which also includes a buffet. The final outlet is the lobby bar which is adjacent to the entrance hall and which is where the evening show takes place in the winter months. The room itself is nothing to go crazy about and is a little dated, while the performance area is also slightly amateurish despite good sound and lighting. There is a flatscreen television here too where sporting events can be watched.

    Beach

    Closely monitored and well maintained, the Playa Jardin is quite large, carpeted with coarse dark sand and flanked by a long foot walk. Equipment include parasols, deck chairs (both at extra cost) and showers. Water sports and games are readily available for children.

    To know

    While this hotel does have some animation, it is not one of the main focuses of the hotel. There are only two shows per week and not a huge amount on offer for children, although during the summer holidays there is someone to look after them and put on some specialized activities. Otherwise, the main idea of this hotel is for it to be a place to relax and unwind in a natural setting without the noise and nuisances of the town centre.

      Perched on its eagle's nest on the heights of Puerto de la Cruz, the Las Aguilas hotel stands out from other hotels of the island. The services offered are more worthy of a 5* hotel than of a 4*, and will meet the expectations of loving couples as well as children with its countless facilities designed for these categories.

      The International 3* hotel is a small charming outfit situated on the heights of Puerto de la Cruz. Far from the frenzy of the club hotels, this extremely pleasant outfit distinguishes itself thanks to its tranquility and friendly atmosphere. You don't come here for excitement or sports.

      A relatively small hotel in a quiet area of Puerto de la Cruz, the Diamante Suites is a hotel perfect for relaxing away from the bustle and bustle of the main touristic area of the resort. Although not right next to the beach, the hotel has great all round views and a good range of facilities for an establishment of its size. It may be a little rough around the edges in parts, but it has a certain charm that is difficult to put your finger on, so we won't try! Suffice to say that if you're looking for a mid-range hotel as a couple (Diamante will become adult-only from next summer) then have a closer look at this one.

      The Chimisay is a peaceful little establishment at the heart of the pedestrian city centre of Puerto de La Cruz. It has 60 unpretentious guest rooms and offers good value for money. It doesn't exactly excel when it comes to the number of facilities on offer, but does nevertheless boast a panoramic rooftop swimming pool offering pretty views over the sea, the tower of the church opposite, and Mount Teide, when it deigns to show itself!

      The Luabay is probably the trendiest, and certainly the youngest, hotel in Puerto de la Cruz. It is a breath of fresh air in an area with many worn out hotels. It has a good range of services, spacious, functional rooms and a very good restaurant. While not entirely focused on families with kids, it does have entertainment for the little ones as well as adults too. Despite its distance from the beach, we'd definitely recommend this cool property for a fun-filled, stress-free break in the sun.

      The Semiramis stands right on the rocky shore and is a large and charmless 17-storey building which does, nevertheless, afford breath-taking panoramic views across the sea from the lobby, the guest rooms and the restaurant. To be perfectly honest, this 5* establishment is more what you would expect of a 4* and could do with a bit of a makeover in places. The surroundings here are very (perhaps too?) quiet and the hotel also has a spa and two swimming pools, the first bring indoor and heated, the second of semi-Olympic size. In a nutshell, this place is best-suited to couples of a certain age seeking a relaxing holiday by the sea.
